The visceral and violent act of a celebrity athlete — captured on video that was shown repeatedly — caused it to resonate across the U.S., said Dan Lebowitz, executive director of the Center for the Study of Sport in Society at Northeastern University in Boston.
“In this instance there is a video and it goes viral,” he said. “Even people that don’t ever think of this type of incident get to see the dynamic of what power looks like when it’s promulgated on another individual, particularly in a domestic violence dispute.”
